Hi all,

I was wondering if there are any updates regarding this community. I took a tour of the townhome models and I must say I was very impressed. I've read the older threads, but I was wondering if someone who lives in the community has anything new to disclose???

Thanks

~Dee

Hi Dee--I don't live in Beechtree yet, but I'll be moving to the development at the beginning of the year. We're currently building a home in Beechtree. I can't give you information as a current resident, but I can help you with any questions you have about becoming a resident rather buying a home for sale/foreclosure/short sale or building a new home/townhome.

Hi Ebonediva,

I really like the community and how it is coming along. I have toured several townhomes and sfh models they have available. I really like the Norwood townhomes that is being built by NV Homes.

Are you building a townhomes or single family house? Which builder did you decide to go with? I'm curious to know what your experience has been like so far. Specifically with your builder of choice.

Thanks

~Dee

I'm thinking of moving to Beechtree in 2011 also. Any more advice or information about the builders is greatly appreciated. I too really like the NV Norwood homes, but figure that is too much space for a townhome, so I am leaning more towards the Ryan townhomes.

@dcdrogers:

We orginially looked at the townhomes but we wanted more room than they offered. We are building a Courtland model with Ryan Homes. They offered the best incentives when we were looking. Liz and Mike (sales office) are very thorough/knowledeable and non-intimidating. They have been great during the process. Our dealings are minimal now with the sales office and we are dealing with the Project Manager. So far things are going smoothly. We are about 3 weeks behind schedule (b/c of a hold-up with receiving permits from the County), but now things are progressing. They have broken ground and are building. The PM calls about once a week to advise on the progress. So far so good.

Thanks Diva,

I've been back through for another looksee at the townhomes and I still love the model. However, as you stated there is a space issue. The square footage seems great, but there is almost no storage other than the garage area. I've checked out the Ryan Homes model and I do like the Victoria and the Zachary models. Glad to hear that everything is progressing well for you.

I have a question regarding future development in Beechtree homes. Not sure if you know the answer, but I figured I asked anyways. I read on another forum that there is a possibility that Beechtree will be building luxury apartments in the community. Apparently the developers had initially planned to build condo's but it looks like there is a high probability that they will now build apartments. I asked Jennifer (NV Homes sales agent) and she said that it hasn't been finaled whether they will got he condo or apt route as yet. I've did read that the apartments will have a seperate entrance from the rest of the community. I don't know how I would feel about this new direction the community may take. Did your Ryan Homes sales team mention anything regarding the development of condo's or apartments?

Thanks

Not specific to Beechtree but that has happened quite a bit-planned condos instead becoming aprtments. The condo market here essentially crashed three or four years ago and builders/developers that had condos in the pipeline converted them.

In all honesty the area south of Central Ave. down into SoMD is not really "Condo Country". People move to the exurbs wanting some yard.

I haven't heard this. I know someone on the Community Board in Beechtree. I'll mention this to them that I heard this and get some feedback. I do know that the community is zoned for an elementary school near the football field that's located near the Ryan SFH model. This is still being discussed by the county and the community board. Projected building of the school is 2016.
